The celluloid entertainer was appointed one of the AIADMK organising secretaries by T.T.V. Dhinakaran on Saturday even as the former MP continued his "surgical strikes" ordering appointments and dismissals in the party not withstanding his recent expulsion from the AIADMK by the headquarters office bearers, including Chief Minister Edappadi K. Palaniswami.

The two factions' decision to remove Sasikala from the post of party general secretary triggered the unrest.

Swamy stressed that Stalin will end up becoming the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and it will be upto Dhinakaran to decide whether he wants to be the Deputy Chief Minister of the state or support the party from outside. Currently, there are concerns whether the united EPS-OPS factions of the AIADMK can prove their majority in the Assembly, as 19 MLAs close to TTV Dhinakaran have withdrawn their support to the Chief Minister.

"However, I did not desire to become CM.AIADMK General Secretary V K Sasikala chose O Paneerselvam to continue the AIADMK rule", he told reporters at Avanashi in Tirupur district. After the merger, the two factions had announced that they would take steps to expel Sasikala and Dinakaran from the party.

There have been demands for a trust vote in the Tamil Nadu assembly by the DMK, Congress and the AIADMK faction led by TTV Dhinakaran. The MLAs are not motivated by money.

On August 23, Dhinakaran sought to assert his authority, axing four ministers from party posts while the MLAs loyal to him stayed put in the resort. Reshuffling the party's doctors wing, he relieved S Muthiah and Lok Sabha MP P Venugopal as its president and secretary respectively.Dhinakaran elevated the doctor wing's joint secretary K Kathirkamu, MLA, presently camping at Puducherry with other MLAs supporting Dhinakaran, as president of the wing. It is only because they have adopted a sacrificial attitude to protect this party by being there, that you have all come here to ask questions about it.
